The $2 flight of premium beers in the Pilot Plant of the Brew House was great. Made our way upstairs after to the Pub and had another couple of great beers and so-so appetizer of Brew House Pretzels with dipping mustard and cheese.

Took out of town visitors to see the high falls and grab lunch. Very family friendly place and accomodating staff. The downstairs is a store and museum. Many of the exhibits are interactive and very interesting in representing Rochester history...not just the Brewery. They also...More
